This year Forrest has two GSoC students.

Gavin will be mentoring one, with me as co-mentor (Oshani Wasana 

I will be mentoring the other, with Gavin as co-mentor (Sina Khakbaz 

Both students will be working on RDF/XML plugins, but both have 
identified different plugins they want to implement.

These students are members of the community like any other, they will 
not be treated any differently and all communications with them will be 
through the dev lists (with the exception of GSoC specific stuff - so we 
can keep the noise down).

Because of the nature of what I had in mind when proposing the project I 
expect them to be working with the dispatcher in the latter half of 
their work.

I hope we can continue to draw on the community to support these new 
community members, particularly in the latter half of the work when we 
start working with dispatcher.

I am hoping that we will be able to get them to test RC1 as part of 
their "initiaition", although official GSoC does not start until next 
month, so do not expect to see them around, if we do, it's a bonus.


Gavin, I will craft an email to send to the students in a moment or two. 
  I think it is best if we send one email to both students and introduce 
them to one another and both of us. If you've already contacted Sina 
it's not a problem.

I'll copy the email to this list.
